Once Everything Is 4 ran its course, Warner Bros. compiled Jason Derulo's most popular singles for Platinum Hits. The gold-certified "Don't Wanna Go Home" and new track "Kiss the Sky" excepted, the 12-track anthology indeed consists of platinum singles, ranging from his 2009 debut "Whatcha Say" -- which was quickly followed by "Replay," a platinum hit Derulo co-wrote for Iyaz -- to 2015's "Want to Want Me." It affirms that Derulo was one of the most popular singers and songwriters of the early 2010s -- not that anyone who frequented a chain restaurant or amusement park during the period would contest the fact. This is a succinct, convenient summary of the manchild dance-pop specialist's output. Casual listeners won't miss much by avoiding the albums it distills. ~ Andy Kellman
